Thankful Thursday | This is where I’m supposed to be

The Frugal Girl

This week, I’m thankful: that I’m sure about my educational choice A lot of things in my life feel rather up in the air right now, but I doooo feel sure that nursing school is where I’m supposed to be. I love the medical material, and the personal side of it also speaks to my soul.

By request: what I’m currently doing with weight-lifting

The Frugal Girl

This has come up a few times recently in the comments, sooo, here you go!

Also: I’m not an expert, and any weight-lifting you do is at your own risk!

Five Frugal Things | bare minimum haircut

The Frugal Girl

1. I got the bare minimum haircut service I generally get a haircut about once a year, and it seemed like it was time. So, I went to Haircuttery and got the cheapest haircut they offer.

At the end of her email, she said, I wonder if you could address the importance of taking care of one’s mental health especially during really hard times, specifically in frugal ways. First: I am most definitely not a licensed psychologist/therapist/anything of the sort.
